Mandarin Oriental, Munich reopens after ambitious revamp
The five-star Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group property has come back better than ever following the biggest renovation project in its history, just in time for the hotel’s 20th anniversary.
Mandarin Oriental’s Bavarian gem has now unveiled all of its newly renovated rooms and suites, which follow on from the restoration of the hotel’s public areas and the introduction of the stylish Matsuhisa Munich restaurant in 2015.
Raising the game for German hospitality
Having just completed the guest-room phase of this major renovation, Mandarin Oriental has undoubtedly strengthened the property’s position as one of Germany’s leading luxury hotels.
“We are delighted to present our new and beautifully designed rooms and suites at Mandarin Oriental, Munich,” said Dominik G Reiner, the hotel’s general manager. “Each room incorporates comfortable and skilful updates and a fresh new look and feel that includes artwork which pays tribute to Munich’s geographical location as the gateway to the Alps.
“We are also proud to be one of the first hotels in Germany to have replaced all single-use plastic items in our rooms and bathrooms with sustainable alternatives that we hope guests will appreciate. The team and I look forward to welcoming our guests and delivering memorable experiences and the personalised and discreet service that we are renowned for.”
Fusing technology and art
The newly renovated guest rooms were designed by Hamburg-based studio cm-Design, with a well-orchestrated fusion of colours, patterns and styles, pairing heritage furniture with contemporary decor. In furnishing each individual space, the hotel collaborated with the likes of Ligne Roset, Felix Graf and House of Tai Ping, and the latest technology enhancing every room extends to the bathrooms, which minimise energy and water consumption.
Mandarin Oriental’s in-room amenities include butler service, locally made biodegradable coffee capsules, an afternoon champagne service and a private bar with creations by Matsuhisa Munich. The art collection, meanwhile, features individual mountain images by local artist Felix Rehfeld, and an installation of 100 miniature mountain paintings, which is prominently displayed in the lobby. Moreover, every suite is finished with a mountain massif artwork exclusively produced for the hotel by Royal Bavarian porcelain manufacturer Nymphenburg.
